Ebenezer Denny was elected as the first mayor of the City of Pittsburgh in 1816. Even before this honor, his life had been full of amazing adventures. Fighting alongside George Washington and many of the heroes of the Revolutionary War, he was given the honor of planting the American flag, after the British surrender at Yorktown. He served as a crew member on a privateer ship. He survived a loss by the American Army three times greater than Custer’s Last Stand. And, he was one of the first Americans to ever visit the shores of Lake Erie. Author James A. McQuiston presents the most-detailed book ever written on Denny, answering several riddles and correcting many facts previously written about this man. This fast-moving, easy-to-read book details the life of one of the truest of American heroes – Ebenezer Denny, First Mayor of Pittsburgh.

About the Author:

James A. McQuiston, FSAScot, has been writing about his family history, and that of Celtic families in general, for many years. He has authored several articles for Highlander magazine, and for the newsletter of the Scotch-Irish Society of the United States of America. He currently publishes the e-magazine Celtic Guide, with help from dozens of writers and photographers around the world. Mr. McQuiston has been accepted as a Fellow with the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland. This group was established in 1780, and has close ties with the National Museums of Scotland. McQuiston is considered a bona fide Scottish historian by this Society and thus is allowed to add the FSAScot suffix to his name as an indicator that he is a recognized scholar in the study of Scotland and Scottish family histories. While researching his own family, McQuiston realized how closely the Denny family was connected to his, and uncovered a vast treasure of previously unassociated information which he presents in this comprehensive book, Ebenezer Denny: First Mayor Of Pittsburgh. The writing of this book coincidentally dovetailed with the planning of the 200th anniversary celebration of the founding of Pittsburgh, and the election of its first mayor, in 1816.
